Preview

The San Francisco Giants visit the Atlanta Braves to play a 4-game series at the Truist Park. The Giants won their last series against the Pirates while the Braves lost 2 of 3 times vs Cubs.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 37-28 record and have won 7 of their last 9 games. The team is averaging 4.9 runs per game while allowing 4.2 runs. Joc Pederson leads the team with 14 home runs and 36 RBI. Yastrzemski is batting for an average of .269.

Logan Webb leads the pitching staff with a 3.43 ERA, 68 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded. 

Probable Pitcher:

Logan Webb (6-2, 3.43 ERA) will be on the mound for the Giants in the 1st game of the series. Webb defeated the Royals on Tuesday. In seven scoreless innings, he allowed five hits and three walks while striking out nine. He is 2-0 with an ERA of 1.35 and 22 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Braves in his career.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 38-29 record and have won 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game with a .249 at bat while allowing 4 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 18 home runs and 41 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .295. 

Kyle Wright leads the pitching staff with a 2.94 ERA, 88 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Max Fried (7-2, 2.90 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 1st game of the series. Fried won at Washington on Tuesday, striking out six batters in 5.2 innings while allowing four runs on six hits and one walk. He is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.05 and 18 strikeouts in 5 appearances versus the Giants in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Francisco's last 5 games.

San Francisco are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games.

Atlanta are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games at home.

Atlanta are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against San Francisco.

Prediction

The Braves lost their last series against the Cubs but they return home where they haven't lost in 7 straight games. They'll send their ace Max Fried for this game and he dominated the Giants the last season pitching 7 scoreless innings to earn the win. The Giants will send Logan Webb who has good number against the Braves as well. This should be a great game but I think Fried has been better this season than Webb and the Braves are doing great at home. Take the Braves.

PICK: Braves ML (-155)
